    I know many of you swear by the Meguiars leather cleaner/conditioner products.  

    Unfortunately, in my part of the world they aren't available but I have found the "Mother's" line of products. Do any of you use their products?

    I have always used Saddle soap and it has served me well for many years..........another choice.......cz  : )

    can't speak to them from personal use, but in the car world, Mother's is very popular.  i've always been a Meguiars user for my cars, so i just bought an extra bottle for my shoes.  but if i was a Mother's (or Adams or Zaino) user, i probably would have just grabbed their stuff.

    LIKE YOU I HAVE A HARD TIME FINDING MEGUIARS (VERY POPULAR) SO I USE MOTHERS REGULARLY.

    A LITTLE DIFFERENT CONSISTANCY BUT SEEMS TO DO THE JOB JUST FINE.

    Thanks -- sounds like it's a good substitute.

    Chuck -- I use saddle soap every so often for a cleaning, but wanted a leather conditioner for more regular use.

    The only problem with "cleaners" on golf shoes is they can break down the "paint" on the shoe and cause it to come off. Simple water, possibly with a little soap added, and a microfiber cloth works very well and will not harm the finish. IMHO.

    Th eproduct needs to be a leather conditioner. Used after a round, it will clean the residue off the shoe and lay down a series of emolients to keep the leather soft and supple.

    Have always worn the Dryjoys and just used the saddle soap......maybe I should use a conditioner......and get another year or two out of them?  Maybe?????

    I used Mothers products on my Mustang for a long time. I highly recommend them for helping preserve your FJ shoes.

    I clean my shoes with saddle soap and follow up Feibels Aussie leather conditioner.

    Might have to look for that and use it after I do the saddle soap number.  Welcome to the community.  Join in on the interaction
